PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 7 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Sturdy build quality
  • Premium, unibody design, with a gold lining running throughout the corners at the back of the handset
  • The metal sides offer decent grip
  • Good display - sharp, fairly bright, and with impressive sunlight legibility
  • Amigo UI over Android looks decent, and comes with a lot of add-on features
  • Decent speed/performance (although behind the top performers in this price bracket)
  • Good call quality
  • Good audio quality via headphones
  • Decent loudspeaker
  • Decent rear and front cameras, during daytime conditions
  • Decent battery life - lasts a day with moderate use

What We Didn't

  • Slightly heavy for its size
  • Corners of the handset could have been more rounded for ease of use
  • Display is a bit smudge prone
  • Comes with a lot of bloatware pre-installed (that can't be uninstalled)
  • The front camera performs just about average in low-light conditions, in spite of the included front flash
